The international Journal of Environment Research and Public Health has recently published our last report, which is a part of the project that the Observatory of Pain is carrying out, called Relationship between the phenotypic characteristics of pain and the presence of digestive disorders, sleep disorders and cognitive function disorders in type-2 diabetics with neuropathic pain.
The aim of this work is to compare the characteristics of sleep in all its dimensions in patients with Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus with or without neuropathic pain and to study the relationship between anxiety and pain’s sensory phenotypes with the quality of sleep in patients with diabetic neuropathic pain.
The results show a relationship between the existence of diabetic neuropathic pain and the patients’ quality of sleep. In addition, the study also notes that pain’s sensory phenotypes and mental comorbidities are also factors to take into account in patients’ sleep disorders.
The conclusion of these results is the need to adopt a multimodal approach to achieve better clinical results.
